a very solid marker that this case, the chen case, was important to the united states. understand a couple of things. this is a broad important relationship between the united states and china, it's always going to be difficult and complex on a good day. then you throw something like this into the mix and it can have the potential for tensions although, up until today, it appeared the united states and china had worked constructively, intensely, to try to resolve this. go ahead. >> p.j., it sounds like someone is doubling back on the original agreement and/or the terms were not fully understood. chen guangcheng saying he felt he wife was going to be beaten to death if he didn't leave the u.s. embassy. it sounds like he at one point said that the u.s. had not -- was not pro active enough. that certainly doesn't look good. >> well, understand that mr. chen was trying to do something that was unique without precedent. normally the united states tries to work to bring activists out of china where they feel they are threatened. mr. chen specifically had the united states negotiate with

month in the united states, 50,000 latinos turn 18 years of age, every single month. if they register to vote, it's going to make a difference before november the 6th. on the issue of romney, i don't think obama has really insulted or hurt the latino sensitivity. i think what it's done is, by saying you support immigration reform but not proposing specifics on immigration reform, by deporting 1.2 million people but not having a plan "b" once that deportation number reaches a record number, i think what it may do is, they're not upset. i think what they are is disillusioned. and so, that causes the question, what happens on november 6th? if he needs that number of overwhelming support to come out on the 6th of november, and a lot of people don't have the heat for him, then maybe they won't come out to vote. >> and that's the question, is voter turnout, a big question. >> but jose, don't you think there's going to be a major effort, not only by the democratic party and the obama campaign, but by groups like america votes to register and turn out latinos? i think you're going to see an i
